In celebration of its centennial, the Hoover Institution opens the exhibition Hoover@100: Ideas Defining A Century in Hoover Tower on October 10, 2019.

Founded in 1919 by Herbert Hoover, the Hoover Institution started as a special collections library devoted to the acquisition and study of documents related to the First World War. In the years to follow, the Institution grew into a leading public-policy research center with far-reaching influence while it maintained a world-renowned Library & Archives, open to the public, that houses many of the modern era’s most important material on war, revolution, and peace. Hoover@100 is a showcase of documents and artifacts centered around the ideas of peace, freedom, and education—ideas that are embodied in the lives of Herbert Hoover and his wife, Lou Henry, and that drove the Institution’s collecting and the work of its eminent fellows in its first one hundred years. Posters, correspondence, photographs, artifacts, and manuscripts drawn exclusively from the Library & Archives’ collections, along with publications by Hoover fellows, are among the materials on display.

Hoover@100: Ideas Defining A Century opens in Hoover Tower on October 10, 2019. Due to the pandemic and extended closure, the exhibition remains on display in Hoover Tower. The exhibition is free and open Monday through Friday, 10 am–4 pm. Closed for major holidays, Stanford home football games, and campus winter closure.
